G23:  The Geologic Column is Based on the Assumption of Evolution


Edited by Greg Neyman



The geologic column is based on evolution.  Evolutionists believe that by following the fossils from bottom to top, one can see evolution in progress

  1. The geologic column was originally devised by creationist geologists, who recognized the faunal succession of organisms.

  2. The column is dated in great detail by radiometric dating, which is based on the principles of physics, not evolution.  Different dating techniques are consistent with each other, providing validation.

  3. Old earth creationists (progressive creationists) accept the geologic column, but not evolution.  One need not base their acceptance of the geologic column on evolutionary arguments.
